Local Attractions

  • Washington, DC is a town that is both steeped in history and current as the evening news. Washington, DC presents ample tourist opportunities, including museums known throughout the world, a world class zoo, extensive restaurants, and a booming theatre district. Here you can step back into the history of the United States and also explore the frontiers of science in the same afternoon. There is plenty to see within easy walking distance of the conference hotel, and even more a short subway ride away, so automobiles are optional. For dining, local attractions and events near the conference venue, see the Hotel Website.

    However, those who prefer to drive can easily also see such sites as the NASM Udvar-Hazy Center (the new home of the Shuttle Discovery and an SR-71 Blackbird), Virginia Beach, Jamestown, Annapolis, and Gettysburg (site of the decisive battle of the American Civil War). Participants can get a lot out of the city by spending extra days exploring the area or simply a summer evening wandering along the National Mall, making this ACC a great one for having the family tag along. The conference hotel will hold the conference rate on available rooms from June 11 to June 24 in 2013 on a space-available basis.

  • The Arts: Washington, DC is a thriving center for the arts. For example, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on the Potomac River (shown in photo below by Carol Pratt) is home to the National Symphony Orchestra, the Washington National Opera, and the Washington Ballet. It presents great performers and performances from America and around the world.

    Additionally, the National Theatre, Warner Theater, and the historic Ford's Theatre are all located in downtown Washington, DC, not too far from the ACC13 conference hotel. Moreover the Capitol Steps, a hilarious satire group of politics and pop culture, perform every Friday and Saturday evening at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, a few blocks from the conference hotel.

  • Sports Fans: A number of professional sports teams make their home in Washington, DC. While the Redskins (NFL), Capitals (NHL), and Wizards (NBA) will be out of season in June, the Mystics (Women's NBA), the Nationals (Washington's MLB team), and DC United (men's soccer) will be in action at the time of the ACC.
